In those towns win-re tliev h ive not i

majority do not wmit om ; this license
amendment makes it possibly to open n
saloon in every city, town, vll 'e, pre
cinct, and neighborhood, evin if every
inan, woman and child say they do not
want it. This lict-ns.- amendment makes
the law of the Mate such, tnat a man can
open a saloon in the face of all opposition
when he has paid the license.
The vote is to be for the saloon or
against it. Is the saloon a good institu
tion, and do I want it to remain ? Do I
want more saloons in our state? Will
they make the people better and richer? ; this afternoon for the arrest of Alva

Now this may not be true, but it looks ; B. & M. railroad,
so to us on this side. If the prohibitory i Thp C()lored mftn Joriloilj styled the
amendment is a law that closes the saloon j TeXi9 Cyclonev delivered two lectures

opposed to the saloon being closed. If
I believe we are better off with the sa
loon then I will favoi tt.-at law which
continues it. How would it look to a
saloon keeper, for a man to say he be
lieved the saloon was a good Ihinc; tht
he believed that it added wealth and
oSn,ritv. strength and excellence, vir-
tue and glory, to our city aud state, and
in the face of all these declarations vote
for the prohibitory amendment that
abolishes the saloon?
Do you believe the saloon keeper would
understand the logic of such a course?
Of course the man is honest and is true to
his convictions, and talks and votes as
he believes. v
But what bothers the saloon keeper is
i 1 . - .- - i
to harmonize the talk and vote II
never questions the man's honesty for a
moment; he knew when he said all those
things in favor of a saloon that he be
lieved them, and he had a tiik with him
Eince he voted and he said he had not
rhanced his mind one iota. Aud the
problem is to be solved how a man who
believes a saloon is such a good institu
tion and does so much good for the
state can vote for a law to destroy it.
How would it look to a minister, for a
man to say he believed the saloon was a
very bad institution; that it produced
poverty, want, vice, crime, drunkards,
sorrow, misery and woe; that any city,
town or village or state or people would
be better off without it, and in the face
of all these declarations vote for that
amendment which provides for the per
petuity and increase of the saloon? How
could the minister harmonize the talk
.and vote? Therefore it seem9 to me that
any man who is opposed to a law to close
the saloon is in favor of keeping them
open. If I don't want them shut I want
them ODen. If I don't want them de-
stroved I want them to exist. If I believe
they are bad institutions and do much
harm I don't believe they are good in
stitutions and do much good. I can not
believe two things which are diametric
ally opposed to each other.

hall opened last night a little after 8
o'clock with a large audience. The
speaker made some good hits for total
abstinence and righteous living, paying
a high tribute of respect to the mothers
who are charged with the early training
of the children. The audience was fre
quently convulsed with laughter, yet the
speaker turned all he said to good ac
count. At the close an earnest invitation
was given to all to sign the pledge and
don the blue ribbon, to which quite a
number responded. No admission was
charged at the door but a collection was
taken to meet the expenses of the meet
ings, rne kockwooci iiau proying in

cluded to secure the opera house for the
remainder of the week.
What Everybody Says Must be True.
Every man, woman and child knows
that the Sells Brothers' circus upon its
last visit to this place was by far the
best circus organization that ever came
this way. This year these enterprising
managers have formed a corner on the
show business by consolidating Barrett's
World's Fair with their enormous exhi
bition, and after this season it will be
hard for the average show to satisfy the
public with a moderate exhibition. The
people when once educated to expect
big things, are not satisfied with com
monplace or little ones. After this seas
on a circus to attract the attention of our
citizens will have to be of a high order,
because it must come into comparison
with the show that preceded it, and as
Sells Brothers and Barrett's United
Shows are so much larger than any other
in this country, there will be no room
for the small fry. These two shows will
spread their huge tents in Plattsmouth

Politics at Harrisou.
Harrison, Neb., June 10.- -The action
of the state central committee in placing
the representation on the basis of the
vote polled in 1S8S is not approved in
northwest Nebraska, w here the popula
tion has materially increased the past two
years, and a less number of delegates to
the state convention is thereby allowed
this part of the state than if based on
the vote for regents a year ago.
. It is quite probable that the rival fac
tions in the republican ranks in Sioux
countv will this vear be united. The
"half and half" representation at the
state convention last year is not wanted
There is some talk to the effect that
the next legislature should contain a rep
resentative froni among the Sioux. Re
publicans in this county want some of
the honors as well as the work attached
to alecting legislators.

Blair, Neb., June 10. A woman has
been the bone of contention between
some of the men working on the new
court house and the collar factory. The
collar factory cause was backed by one
Morgan and the court house gang by
Compton. After a war of words both
parties decided to settle the controversy
by a pugilistic encounter. Both parties
retired beyond the city limits, followed
by a large crowd. Upon arriving at the
grounds Morgan had but two or three
backers, while Compton had a large
crowd drawn up in battle array. Mor
gan, seeing that his chances were slim
and the odds were greatly against him,
suddenly pulled a 44-calibre reyolver
and told his opponents to disperse.
This they did in fine style, and in the
haste to get out of range one official's
buggy was nearly upset in the scramble
